D70 enables experienced-to-amateur photographers to easily adopt digital technology into their existing camera system. The camera has 3D Digital Matrix Image Control, Digital Vari-Programs, and a lens servo system. Nikon engineers chose the MPC17511 H-bridge motor driver IC from Freescale Semiconductor to power the motor. The monolithic driver integrates control circuitry for driving integrated and external n-channel MOSFETs. Designed for PWM control frequencies up to 200 kHz, the analog IC offers increased battery life for the portable application.

Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
Engineers at the University of San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering have designed biobatteries on commercial tattoo paper, with an anode and cathode screen-printed on and modified to harvest energy from lactate in a person’s sweat.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
